This picture is from three summers ago when I was in Corfu enjoying the heat and the fresh food. Greek cafes have some of the freshest foods and some of the healthiest too! I can’t wait to go again and savor the flavors of the Mediterranean. Cheers everyone!

Pasteli is a wonderful sweet snack

Pasteli is one of the best snacks that you can keep in your bag when youre on the go! Its made of sesame seeds and honey and is super healthy. You can think of it as the Greek version of granola bars. The recipe is super simple, and if you'd like to make it I have attached some recipes below. 😀

Where to get the best gyros in Athens

Athens has some of the best street food in Greece! You can pretty much get great street food anywhere in Greece, but these are some of my best suggestions for the next time that you're in Athens. I recommend ordering a gyro pita with tzatziki, french fries, tomatoes, and onions! It's the classic gyro and you won't be disappointed.

How to make Greek chicken with okra!

This is one of those recipes that people either love or hate! Okra is super controversial but I personally love it. This is a traditional Greek recipe and has very simple ingredients: chicken, okra, tomato, onion, butter and spices. The first step you will need to take is cutting the ends off of the okra and washing it well with cold water. After that, you will need to sauté onions in a hot pan until they are soft and add tomato. Then, add any cut of chicken and your okra. Add in salt, pepper, one bay leaf, and cloves. Let the pot simmer on low heat for 45 minutes or until the chicken and the okra is tender. There you have it!

How to make refreshing mussels saganaki for the summer

Mussels might seem like an intimidating dish to cook, but they're actually pretty easy. I like to get fresh mussels from a fishmonger or a grocery store when they are available. I make sure to clean them really well on the outside to get all of the sand out, and I boil them once until they open and quickly rinse them so any sand inside will escape. After that, I follow this recipe and they come out perfect!

How to make a gyro completely from scratch

Making gyros can be pretty simple… but also pretty complicated. If you're in the mood for a challenge, I recommend that you check out this video and try making all of the different parts of a gyro from scratch. This is what I like to do if I have a little extra time on my hands, and want to impress my family lol. Of course, ordering takeout is always a great option, especially if you're supporting a local Greek business.
